Church Icon No ShadowThere are more than 60 million evangelical Christians participating in over 300,000 churches nationwide. This provides an incredible opportunity to engage in foster care ministry. With its existing infrastructure and caring congregants, each individual local church and its community of believers can be the solution to the local foster care problem.

We work closely with churches to create growing and sustainable foster care ministries based on the FaithBridge Community of Care. With this model, FaithBridge and churches not only recruit and train foster families but also build a volunteer network surrounding and supporting each foster family.


Five Steps to Start a Foster Care Ministry at Your Church

1. Pray
Consider if this is where the Lord is leading you and your church before you embark on the adventure of foster care ministry together.

2. Pastoral Support
It's critical to have the senior pastor on board and supporting a foster care ministry for it to be woven into the entire church body and ministry plan. He or she does not need to be the main point person, but we do require support from the leadership to move forward.

3. Identify Leadership
Who might God be calling to be involved? The foster care ministry leadership team includes at least 3-5 individuals who will be advocates for foster care and participate in leading and organizing the ministry. 

4. Annual Ministry Plan
This will guide your church's foster care ministry, setting goals and guiding as you move forward to develop and implement a new program, continually woven into the larger church body and other ministries.

5. Encounter, Foundations and Volunteer Support Team Training
Once the legwork is complete, we will work with you to schedule an orientation program to which your entire congregation is invited and follow up with foster, respite and volunteer training. 


"FaithBridge has reminded us that doing life is not something that you do alone. They have reminded us to reach out for others' support, not just for the good of us, but for the encouragement of those that we reach out to."
